Paul Rodríguez and Brendt Wohlberg, "Performance Comparison of Iterative Reweighting Methods for Total Variation Regularization", in Proceedings of IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP), (Paris, France), doi:10.1109/ICIP.2014.7025352, pp. 1758--1762, Oct 2014

Abstract

Iteratively Reweighted Least Squares (IRLS) is a well-established method of optimizing lp norm problems such as Total Variation (TV) regularization. Within this general framework, there are several possible ways of constructing the weights and the form of the linear system that is iteratively solved as part of the algorithm. Many of these choices are equally reasonable from a theoretical perspective, and there has, thus far, been no systematic comparison between them. In this paper we provide such a comparison between the main choices in IRLS algorithms for l1- and l2-TV denoising, finding that there is a significant variation in the computational cost and reconstruction quality of the different variants.
